Enjoy the dry and warmer conditions while they last across Northern California today. Cooler temperatures, and the potential for wet weather will be returning for your mid to late week forecast. Clouds are blanketing Northern California for the start of your Monday and skies are expected to stay cloudy today. Showers are not likely, so you can feel free to leave your umbrella at home on your way out the door this morning. The clouds have helped to trap in the heat from yesterday and that is resulting in mild temperatures early today. Valley areas are starting out in the mid 40's to low 50's this morning, and mountain areas are in the 20's to 30's early today. Skies will stay cloudy, and winds will be up to 10mph out of the North this afternoon. High temperatures are projected to top out in the 62 to 69 degree range in the valley this afternoon, and mountain areas are projecting highs in the 40's to 50's later today.
Clouds will continue to brush across Northern California over the next several days, and we will have a slight chance for sprinkles returning to some areas on Tuesday. Temperatures will be cooling down through the week, with low 60's projected for Wednesday, and mid to high 50's projected for the valley later this week. Showers will be more widespread, but still light on Wednesday. I would recommend getting your umbrella handy for Wednesday and then keeping it handy through your weekend. Snow levels will be starting out above 6000' on Wednesday, but are expected to drop late this week. Thursday is currently projected to be mostly dry, but more widespread showers will be returning on Friday. Snow levels will dip into the 4500' range for Friday and Saturday. There is a chance we could see snow levels dip into the 3000' range this weekend. That would mean portions of the foothills could see some snow for Super Bowl Sunday. Temperatures will stay in the mid to high 50's in the valley through your upcoming weekend.
